Zangadoo Kangaroo—a soft-hearted marsupial—lives with his mum, dad, and bouncing baby brother Joey in the town of Zillaroo, Australia. He's been moping about a bit at home since Joey the Wonderful was born and stole his parents' attention. So, it is a Big Day indeed for Zangadoo when his dad lets him take the mysterious family boomerang to the playground. But when Wally Wombat throws the boomerang, it gets stuck in the top of a gum tree! Zangadoo leaps to rescue it...but what would have been a normal kangaroo-hop turns into a magical flying leap that takes him all the way into the wilds of the Australian Outback! Adventures with grumpy crocodiles and hungry dingoes ensue.

This is the sometimes funny, sometimes hair-raising, sometimes heartwarming story of how Zangadoo finds his way home...with no help at all from chirpy troublemaker Barnaby Budgie. The first title in the Zangadoo Kangaroo and Friends series of illustrated chapter books! (Note: E-book edition has full-color illustrations, 94-page paperback has black-and-white illustrations.) (Ages 6 & older, or younger for reading aloud)

"This charming adventure brings the magic and excitement of the Australian Outback and its unique creatures to life! The sense of place, story, and characters are beautifully balanced. Fresh and fun." --Tom Wilson, Internationally Syndicated Ziggy Cartoonist
